Starting on 3/5, presenters will become prime responders to Mr. Woodruff's questions about the topic.
Mr. Woodruff will lead class discussion for the rest of the year.
Prime Responders will have their interaction with Mr. Woodruff be counted as presentations.
Not being on time or in attendance will affect the Prime Responders grades.


Phil period 7
FOR SECOND PRESENTATIONS: presenters are to read their materials and do all the presentation work during the week before their presentations. I will check that as their homework, not the assigned homework the rest of the class has. You are expected to take notes in class and still write the in-class essay on the material the week before you present.
